Props to NBA 2K12/2K Sports
 
Okay so I used to be a live player first, 2K player second. I basically bought both games yearly starting in 01 ish. In around 07 I dropped Live because their quality was going down while 2K's was going up. I wanted to give props to 2K Sports because despite no competition this year they took the harder path. They didn't sit on their ass** to rake in money from Live players who aren't getting a game. Instead they worked hard to improve the game in tons of ways and have arguably created the greatest basketball sim ever, topping even last year according to almost all previews.

Fan interaction, more realistic in every way, more accurate signature moves/shots for each player, better announcers (added Steve Kerr), sick soundtrack. More realistic physics, more fluid post game, way more post moves and collision moves in the paint. The post up button is now a toggle which means you won't have to hold it down like older games. I mean what's not to like!?

Kudos to these guys and I will be buying 2K12 opening day. I'm getting the Larry Bird cover... how about you guys?

:applause: I agree,Clippersfan. I was a Live fan for years. But I grew sick of the lack of effort by Live. They did not even try! At least 2K brings it every year with you features. When it drops, I will be getting the 2K12 next month. I am saving my bottle returns. I thought that Bird/Magic/Jordan were sharing the cover?

:cheers: . Naw man! You get to pick between Bird, Magic or Jordan. I gotta go with the fiery country boy who put many many people in their places haha. I don't see why anyone would pick Jordan unless they are massive homers because Jordan got the cover last year too.

I went from 2k to live for 03 and then back to 2k in 06. Should have skipped 2k10 though.

since

Yet I haven't bought a NBA game since NBA 2K5. I haven't felt the need to upgrade. My buddies and I and still play it religiously.
